Research areas

TEM imageThe FINE laboratory research has two main areas: 1) Combustion and emissions and 2) nanoparticle synthesis.

The combustion and emission research carried out includes studies on fine particle formation, ash behaviour and emissions in biomass combustion, engine emissions, emission reduction technologies and combustion aerosol sampling systems. Health and climate effects of combustion aerosol emissions are studied as part of the UEF top-level research area “Aerosols, Climate Change and Health” and within an extensive international and national collaboration networks.
